  • Blood cell-producing site in a yeast-particle-injected slug, Incilaria fruhstorferi, was studied by light and electron microscopy, in vivo and in vitro. Cells lining the vascular system and hemocoel wall were discontinuous, scattered, and morphologically resembled fibroblasts. One hour after injection of yeast-particles as foreign material, the lining cells projected into the lumen and 3 h later, the cells were gradually released from the wall. They were morphologically similar to macrophage… CONTINUE READING
